Seattle Art Museum, Sunday, December 8, 2019, 2pm-3pm


“I was keen on exploring the human cost of war beyond victory and defeat, on imagining and chronicling the testimonies of those for whom victory becomes a word without meaning. The families left shattered, distraught siblings and wives, a populace shorn of land and home, those reduced to slavery or serfdom or the reign of another ruler, who’d merely perpetuate an expedient social ‘order.’ And to examine too, through these accounts, how we can all too easily become complicit in conflict and injustice.” — Karthika Naïr

Come hear Karthika discuss Until the Lions, her radical retelling of the Mahabharata, at the Seattle Art Museum! Sunday, December 8th from 2-3PM. Admission is free with an RSVP. The event will be held in the Plestcheeff Auditorium.
